Connecticut Water Service, Inc. (CTWS) announced net income of $16.7 million or $1.40 earnings per basic common share (EPS) for 2018 on total revenues of $124.8 million. Non-GAAP Adjusted Net Income*, which excludes merger and acquisition costs, for 2018 increased from the prior year by $2.2 million. The improved results in 2018 were primarily driven by increased revenues in base rates in Connecticut and Maine as well as increases in Water Infrastructure and Conservation Adjustment (WICA) and Water Infrastructure Charge (WISC) surcharges. The increased base rate revenues are associated with a settlement agreement between The Connecticut Water Company (Connecticut Water Company) and the Office of Consumer Counsel that was approved by the Connecticut Public Utilities Regulatory Authority (PURA) and a rate increase in The Maine Water Company’s (Maine Water) Biddeford and Saco division that became effective in December 2017.
